On the Pier, Berkeley

September 18, 2009

Last May, I visited Jana at her home near San Francisco, and we had a wonderful time painting together.  But, first things first, we started out with a great meal at Skate’s, right on the bay.  As we waited for a table, we took a stroll on the pier next door.  Right now I’m participating in a sketchbook exchange called the Carnets Baladeurs. When I received one from Cathy in South Africa entitled au fil de l’eau, I pulled out the photos from my day with Jana and based my sketch on that (I removed the lights for the composition , in case you know the pier and are wondering why this looks strange).  The moleskine accordion notebooks have a yellowish paper which doesn’t accept watercolor very well.  As an experiment, I used colored ink on this one, but the results weren’t very different.

    Yeah, that moleskine paper is a tough customer. But your results are beautiful!

    I agree with Suzanne! Nice job.

    I particularly love when you include people in your work–this is a delight, Casey!

    What a wonderful spread, Casey! I love your colours and loose style of drawing. These elements really do convey a sense of ‘summer’ in this painting.

    Never used an accordian Moley. Have to see if I can find one to play with.

    Thanks for your comment on my photos 🙂

    Wow! Look at that! Our day recreated and refreshed! How nice that you were able to draw on that day for more art. I love the way you simplify and use good design to create a compelling image. I hope some day I will learn to do that!

    Very nice work!! Try to put some soap into the water colour, it will stick to the moleskine that way ^_^
